Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
Finally, an Internet handbook that actually tries to explain to you, in the first chapter no less, the difference between having ``access'' to Internet and being ``on'' Internet! Fisher recognizes that you need to understand a few rules of the road before you pull onto the digital highway. With these rules in mind, she goes on to explain how you can reach other folks with E-mail, how you can get into other computers, and, finally, how to use netnews, gopher, WAIS, and other tools to find information. Riding the Internet Highway is well organized and ideal for the beginner using a personal computer to reach Internet. If you're just starting out, this volume might be just the ticket to keep near the keyboard and modem.
An introduction to the Internet that instructs the reader on how to access and interact with the Net's most popular newsgroups, databases, and user groups. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
